COVID-19 Update: The Health Department responded to 22 additional cases for the week ending Friday, March 5th. One year from the first COVID case being reported in New Jersey, Hopewell Township has now documented 675 cases. As we strive to stop the spread of new variants, consider getting tested for COVID-19 even if you are asymptomatic - and especially if you have frequent contact with the general public. You could be a carrier. Getting tested allows you to isolate if you test positive, helping prevent the people in your circle from getting sick. At-home testing is quick and easy. Mercer County offers a free saliva test for all county residents and workers. Go to www.mercercares.org to register.
